DCO application

8th July 2022
DCO application

We have now submitted our DCO application to the Planning Inspectorate (PINS), who will take up to 28 days to determine whether it meets the legal requirements for acceptance.

If accepted, our application will be considered by one or more Examining Officers from PINS and all documents will be published on their website. The examination will take the form of a series of hearings at local venues in and around Wisbech; a video link will also be provided for those who cannot attend in person. PINS have six months to examine the application and a further three months to make their recommendation to the Secretary of State. The Secretary of State will issue a decision on the application within a further three months.

Anyone who wishes to attend the examination hearings must register as an Interested Party by making a Relevant Representation; more information can be found on the PINS website:

About MVV

With a work force of almost 6000 employees and an annual turnover of around € 4 billion, MVV’s core business comprises the distribution of energy, natural gas and water in Mannheim and other cities, the generation of Energy from Waste (EfW) and other energy projects with a focus on renewables such as onshore wind power and energy efficiency.

MVV Umwelt, a subsidiary company of MVV, has over 50 years’ experience in building and operating waste management facilities in Germany, and is one of the top three companies in Germany in its field. “Umwelt” is the German word for environment, so it operates as MVV Environment in the United Kingdom. In Germany, MVV Umwelt operates five EfW (taking residual household waste) and Biomass (taking waste wood) facilities, treating 1.6 million tonnes of waste and biomass a year.

MVV entered the UK market in October 2008, bidding primarily for public sector waste contracts across the country. Now established as a responsible and growing group of companies in the UK, MVV operates three EfW and Biomass facilities treating over 500,000 tonnes of household residual waste and biomass a year. MVV is in the pre-application stage of developing its fourth project in Wisbech to deliver a joint waste management solution and combined heat and power facility in the Medworth ward of Fenland District Council.
